George Carlin on God, religion and sun worship.

| August 22, 2006 | 2 Replies

I just happened upon this 1999 George Carlin comedy routine — a slick, pointed and . . . well, Carlinesque . . . critique of religion.

I found the Carlin video on a sassy site populated by lots of non-believers: “God is for Suckers,” a site that makes Dangerous Intersection’s presentation look rather tame by comparison.  Recent posts also include crusader pajamas for sale, for example.  

The site is not all fun and games, though.  The authors also crank out lots of in-your-face cultural commentary.  For example, a recent post discussed a 2005 study by Gregory Paul (in the Journal of Religion and Society) finding that “secular societies have lower rates of violence and teenage pregnancy than societies where many people profess belief in God.”

    Crusader pajamas: so children can "feel safe and secure" after their Christian parents have terrorized them with stories about an invisible devil who is constantly chasing them and, if he catches them, will burn them in hellfire for all eternity. No wonder the kids need special PJs to help them feel safe and secure.

    Any guesses of where extreme Fundamentalists come from? Perhaps this is what happens when otherwise normal kids are pumped full of paranoid fears since birth: maybe it wires their brains into twisted messes of irrationality — eager to preach nonsense or even commit suicide bombing once they finally become old enough to act on their lifetime of fears.

    BTW, if you want to buy some of those crusader pajamas, you can get them at the following web site: http://www.armorofgodpjs.com/ .
